of the senate science committee? how about this from the newly elected north carolina governor? >> the obama machine, the ground machine, is absolutely incredible. i saw it in '08 when i lost in '08 running for governor. i was blind-sided by it. this time i wasn't blind-sided, but i still think they have a much better ground machine. >> republicans lost because of the obama machine. it was the machine that delivered 71% of the latino vote, not policy. and how about this gem from tea party senator elect ted cruz? >> the first debate between romney and obama, the one time we actually contested ideas, presented two viewpoints and directions for the country. and then inevitably there are these mandarins in politics who give the voice, don't show any contrast, don't rock the boat. so by the third debate, i'm pretty certain mitt romney actually french kissed barack obama that night. >> maybe i saw a different debate. kissing aside, i think he's implying that romney was too moderate. that's the real punch line. these guys want you to believe they change, but that couldn't be further from the truth.
